13 PS VR games compatible with PS Move that are even better with motion controls

Enhance your immersion by using PlayStation’s motion controller with Skyrim VR, Batman: Arkham VR, Tumble VR and more

While you can enjoy a huge range of PS VR games with just the Dualshock 4, did you know you can make your virtual reality experience even better with PS Move?

PlayStation’s motion controller can bring you closer to the action. Be it recreating the movements of an iconic superhero, clashing swords with undead warriors atop a snowy mountain or just trying to precariously balance objects atop one another, PS Move can deepen your immersion of your favourite PS VR game.

Sounds good, right? And even if you’re already using PS Move controllers to make PS VR even better, you may be missing out on some of the most immersive experiences available now. So here are 13 of the best games to get the most out of your PS Move.

What is it?
Perform a succession of increasingly bizarre operations in this darkly humorous take on ER.

No mention of The Solus Project?

How much better PSVR could have been if do you didnt use those horrible badly tracked controllers :(

2.1

The tracking is fine.

It’s your bog standard lighting and room.

2.2

You keep telling yourself that…. even in pitch black they’re bad.

2.3

You’re not supposed to play in pitch black, it’s bad for the tracking. Read the instructions that came with it or the instructions on PS4, tracking is pretty much perfect on mine.

I won’t b using move controllers till sony can b bothered to add thumb sticks to them which is a great shame as I would spend more on psvr games.

When Move first came out on PS3 they also released a companion Navigation controller which was very much like the Wii’s Nunchuck but wireless. No idea why it wasn’t considered for use with PSVR.

It was reported earlier this year that Sony had submitted patents for new Move controllers with analogue sticks so fingers crossed they are working on it!

I’m not a fan of teleporting in VR games.

3.2

Navy controller had no move ball no vr can’t see it.

3.3

It doesn’t need to be seen by the camera/VR, it just needs to recognise analogue stick for movement and button inputs for whatever else. The move in the other hand could be used for the actions that require tracking and accuracy. It worked in Datura on PS3 if my memory serves me right.

Maybe instead of so many damned VR articles we could have one about unmentioned good games, like Pixeljunk Monsters 2 or something?

Ignore this post. The phone layout of this site is horrible lol. I keep thinking i’m replying to someone else’s post but i’m actually not.

In Australia to buy 2 move controllers costs 120 AUD. What a joke! #StuffTheRRP

6.1

Especially since before the psvr came out they were in the bargain bin. I got a pair for less than ten bucks each.

6.2

Thats about the same as The UK. £69.00 (That’s a reasonable price btw, some charge a lot more) over here which is just over 120 AUD. The UK is the worst place for gaming prices currently. US game $60, UK equivalent: £60.00 (105 AUD). Disgusting pricing from Sony who seemingly hate the European market.

Anyone know what happened to rollercoaster tycoon joyride vr ?

It’s amusing how PSVR raised the cost of 2nd hand Move controllers. I literally bought one for £3 in a 2nd hand shop sometime ago and now the same shop sells them for £25. :P

I’d say UltrawingsVR

Skyrim is awful with PS Move due to teleporting instead of just moving which you can do with a controller. Many other games which also require movement suffer the same issue. A complete redesign of the move controllers is needed, left with analogue stick or even introduction of the PS3 navigation nunchuck is needed for further immersion.

I really hope we see a few new games for PSVR at E3. 🤞
